Fall is here and romance is definitely in the air. There is no better time to take an amorous vacay then now. Whether you spend a long weekend lounging in Savannah or head west to Montana on a hiking retreat, make your way to one of these destinations for a cozy getaway you’ll never forget.
Big Sur, California
Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur, California
Big Sur, located in central California, is a lightly populated area with picturesque beaches and insta-worthy mountainous views. During the fall, the weather is relatively warm making it the optimal time to travel to this dreamy destination. When you go, stay at the Post Ranch Inn (which over looks the Pacific Coast) or at the Ventana Inn and enjoy lots of wine, spa treatments and private time with your love. P.S. no one under 18 is allowed to crash at either inn—grown folk only!
Wickwood Inn, Bed & Breakfast, Saugatuck, Michigan
Next up is Saugatuck, Michigan, a sweet pick for the creative couple. While you’re there, be sure to stroll through the numerous art galleries like Amazwi Contemporary Art (which features contemporary African art), the Saugatuck Gallery, and the Janice Miles Gallery. Afterwards, grab a cozy corner table right at the Wickwood Inn’s very own restaurant or at Bowdie’s Chop House to enjoy candlelight cocktails with your love.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Amangani Resort, Jackson Hole, Wyoming
When you think of autumn, pumpkin lattes, beautiful fall foliage and cool air most likely come to mind. And what better way to enjoy the season that offers all of this goodness than with the ultimate outdoorsy couples paradise. Our pick: Jackson Hole’s luxurious Amangani resort. With heated outdoor pools overlooking the Teton and Snake River Mountain ranges, a tasty on site restaurant, and a full-service spa, trust, the Amangani won’t disappoint.
The Ritz Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee
We don’t know why, but folks sleep on the south, so we’re putting Greensboro (a charmingly romantic Georgian town) on your radar. If you’re looking for a sweet way to spend 72 hours away from the city, reserve a suite at the Ritz-Carlton, Reynolds Lake Oconee and indulge in their marble tubs, after biking, kayaking and strolling through this historic town with bae. And if a bubble bath isn’t relaxing enough, chill out by the campfire with a bottle of champagne. That should do it.
Alys Beach, Florida
Vacation Community in Alys Beach, Florida
Alys Beach is America’s answer to the Mediterranean. The white architectural buildings punctuated along the pristine Florida coastline is visually reminiscent of Santorini. If you can’t get to Greece, this is the next best thing—well, kinda. When you visit, rent a villa and invite a few other couples to travel with you. Now is actually a great time to visit, prices are lowest during the fall season.
The Mayflower Grace Hotel, Washington Connecticut
At the Mayflower Grace Hotel in Washington, Connecticut, it is encouraged that you take life one step at a time. In other words, don’t stay here unless you are willing to really allow yourself to vacate. With several gardens on grounds, a fishing pond, speciality fall facials and local chefs on deck to prepare meals for you and boo, you seriously need to check this spot out.
Hamilton Turner Inn, Savannah, Georgia
Savannah is another place with distinctive southern charm. Take your romance to the antebellum streets and watch local artisans partake in their craft as you stroll along Factors Walk and River Street. When you’re done shopping, eating and sightseeing, end the night snuggled up in your extra-large canopy bed at the Hamilton Turner Inn.
The Hamptons, New York
Southhampton Inn, Southhampton Village, New York
We know, The Hamptons is a hot spot during the summer, but unbeknownst to many, it’s pretty cool to visit during the fall too. Have a stay in the secluded but not excluded Southampton Inn. From champagne and chocolates to gourmet cheese and house-made bread, made available to you in you very own European-style digs, this place got romance on lock.
Sterling Ridge Resort, Jeffersonville Vermont
Head up north to the Sterling Ridge Resort in Vermont and enjoy your own private log cabin. These cabins are complete with their own kitchen, jacuzzi, and fireplace—so staying in ain’t such a bad idea. If you get cabin fever and want to do something adventurous, go boating on the resorts’ pond and take usies with Mount Mansfield in the backdrop. What?!? You know you’re into usies. We love Vermont, it’s an easy romantic northeastern getaway that you can drive, fly or train to.
Cat Springs, Texas
Blisswood Bed and Breakfast Ranch, Cat Springs, Texas
Everything is bigger in Texas and it’s no different when it comes to romance. Book a few nights for you and your guy at the Blisswood Bed and Breakfast Ranch and enjoy the private outdoor hot tubs, horseback riding, archery, and a whole lot more. If you grow tired of the Texas cowboy vibe and crave more of a city flex, Houston is only an hour away.
